Love Life a Latte

:) Yes, in case you didn't know that about me, I'm one for puns. Not the "oops, that was an accident" pun, but the "ohmygod, i can't believe you said that on purpose" puns. (I'm so pun-y)

Captain's Row. Once the major port on the Potomac. Scottish merchant city. battle ground of that slightly pushy Brit, Lt. Col. W. Braddock's "The Grandest Congress" of the French/Indian War in 1755. Home of numerous ghosties, goulies, and vampires.

wait, WHAT?!??!

Vampires in Alexandria??

Yes, Vampires in Alexandria. And no, you do NOT want to date them. They do NOT sparkle, smell good, look "god-like," or eat animals rather than dear Aunt Eunice.  ...but I digress

Friday and Saturday were spent walking the streets of Old Town Alexandria. My friend Amanda and I took the metro to the city, then a bus down to the waterfront. It was beautiful!.
We walked all around the area, from Union Street, where we ate at the awesome Union Street Public House, to the metro station, which eventually took us home. The area is absolutely thriving with life, families, businesses, and amazing smells! There is a restaurant practically every other storefront, each one with a different cuisine or theme. From Casablanca Moroccan Cuisine to the entirely Lord of the Rings themed Bilbo Baggins Restaurant, the downstairs of which was transformed into the Green Dragon Pub, the number of restaurants and eateries is staggering! ...just the way I like it :)
me + food = match made in Heaven

Me Again

Hey. It's me again.
To Write Love on Her Arms is an amazing organization committed to raising awareness about and preventing teen suicide, addiction, and depression. Within the past 4 years, they've done an amazing job. Recently, they began a 24/7 suicide counseling hotline, where teens can talk to other teens and volunteers about their thoughts of suicide, depression, addictions, etc.

I've recently joined their Street Team, which means it's my job to promote the organization, and I figured, why not use by blog as an outlet? I don't know how many people even see the blog, but at least I can try :)

So here's the newest post:

TWLOHA has come out with a new shirt, "Wild Things." take a look!

Hey all!

This isn't a "real" post, just a shout out. I'm on the Street Team for To Write Love On Her Arms, and they are trying to win a full page, colour add in USA Today. Please help them win by tweeting the following update on twitter:

"Please Tweet: #AmericaWants @TWLOHA to get a full-page ad in USA TODAY."

It would help SO much!!! Their message needs to get out to the world! Suicide is a growing tragedy in our society, and they're doing all they can to help, but if no one knows about their cause, then what good would it do?
